If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. You should get the codes read to show what the computer has identified. Most autoparts stores will do the scan for free if they have the capability to do it. Getting the codes will assist in taking the proper corrective action. Hope this helped and best wishes.

there is a code set in the ABS computer that will have to be checked out and the same with the check engine light but the code will be in the PCM for that. it could be a damaged sensor/wires at the sensors or if you driving in deep snow it could be causing a false code and there is nothing wrong.

Have a 1249 diesel doblo 55 i have a job starting but when it runs its fine and i was driving it the other day and the engine management light came on and the engein stopped and now it want start at all...


Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Fuses, relays, Mass air flow sensor, crank sensor. Most likely your check engeine light is on, check for codes and descriptions, this will point you in the direction you need to go.

Dose the entire engein and trans have to be taken out of an elantra 2004 2.0 are can you seperate at block and replace the engein


It would be easier to remove both, itll be more work to split it in the car and just pull the engine.

Pull the engine and trans as one and then just mount trans to new engine and drop back in
